Each year, from September to December, we offer opportunities to join us and collect data on whale sharks.
Onboard partner operator Baleines Rand’eau, you will join tourists at sea and collect data (photo-ID, sex, size, scars, behaviour) using a tablet while working as a pair with another volunteer. You will then enter your collected data in our database, and directly visualise your contribution through close supervision with our field team.We provide a three-day training session (freediving, data collection on whale sharks at sea, data entry) to equip you with all the required skills necessary to contribute to data collection on whale sharks for the rest of your stay.
We are now fully booked for 2023, we will advertise the 2024 spots early next year!
No need to be a marine biologist. But make sure you check our requirements below before you apply 🤗 Please note this a multistep process with an initial questionnaire, screening process and interview.
Want to join our team year-round and contribute to our efforts? We are constantly looking for bright minds with either drive or experience in specific fields. Please note that all our team is volunteer-based (except from Malagasy staff). Please contact us directly with your CV.
We do not currently offer any bachelor, master projects or internships.
